Ivanka Trump’s uplifting and positive speech at the final day of the RNC was a breath of fresh air. Then, in came her blowhard father. Voters were disgusted by how Donald ruined Ivanka’s message of goodwill, as he ended the night with anger and hate. Click to see.
As The Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun” played throughout the Quicken Loans arena on July 21, a shining light broke through the hateful rhetoric and fear-mongering that surrounded Cleveland ever since the start of the Republican National Convention. Ivanka Trump, 34, stood on the stage and delivered a speech that was full of positivity, cheerfulness and a little controversy when she revealed she wasn’t a Republican.
She spoke on how her father’s companies support equal pay for women, paid maternity leave and other important issues, winning over voters who had turned their backs on Donald Trump, 70.
Then, it was all shot to hell when her father came on stage. In a speech that blamed Hillary Clinton, 68, for creating ISIS and doubled down on closing the U.S. borders to the rest of the world, Donald ruined the goodwill that Ivanka had just built up.
“Donald was doing better when Ivanka was speaking.” one voter tweeted, while another said they were ready to jump back on the “Trump Train” before the ex-Celebrity Apprentice star derailed it. Some were even hoping that Kanye West, 39, was going to pull a VMA stunt and say “Imma ley you finish…”
Donald was doing better when Ivanka was speaking.

Ivanka Trump should be Donald Trump's new spokesperson. No spokesperson could deliver a better speech than her last night

Too bad they're gonna ruin this Ivanka speech by having Donald Trump follow it.

After this speech, Ivanka's poll numbers might be better than Donald's and Hillary's.

While Ivanka’s speech was one of the more positive highlights of the four-day convention, she wasn’t always smiling during her time in Cleveland. In fact, Ivanka looked downright enraged once Ted Cruz, 45, got off the stage.
The Texas Senator (and Donald’s Republican rival during the GOP Primary) refused to endorse Donald for president, and Ivanka appeared furious after his speech. Thankfully, she found her chill in time to deliver her speech. It’s a shame to voters dismayed by Trump that she wasn’t the one running for president.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did Donald “ruin” everything Ivanka built up with her speech? Or do you think Donald’s speech was just fine?
